Stanford        Three Motets op.38

Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, in his own arrangement for organ, harp and percussion, is an exhilarating opening to a concert of English music that complements both the Song Day (16 February) and the University Choir concert (13 March).  The Five Spirituals come from Tippett’s oratorio A Child of our Time where they evoke the audience’s response to the drama.  Written for the University Chamber Choir in 1971, Peter Aston’s Haec Dies has a notable role for the organ soloist, as does the Parry.  The beauty and simplicity of Stanford’s motets have made them models in the genre.
